This was inevitable. The evidence of her corrupt behavior has been out there for a while and really it is clear that she is guilty, but she has avoided and denied hoping it would blow over but unfortunately it has not and she now blames the people investigating her rather than her own corrupt behavior which is the cause of it all ( and she knows this which is why she resigned). She has been a good leader but it does not make up for corruption and her continued lying and evasion about this. Meanwhile in the federal government there is no corruption commission and the current government is guilty of far worse corruption with its Sports and Car Parks rorts but they refuse to allow such a commission to be established so they are able to get away probably forever.

Maybe the hard on for locking everyone inside was to distract from this.

Now she's gone anyway there might be a change of policy to something less tyrannical

This is the State Premier that all the anti-lockdown people were praising to the skies last year because (in their opinions) she wasn’t a tyrant like they thought Victoria’s Daniel Andrews was. Some went even further, equating Andrew’s’ tough Covid approach with political corruption and Berejiklian’s laissez-faire assumptions of superiority with political honesty. Now the boot is on the other foot, and for her former fans former heroine Gladys is a tyrant too, and possibly corrupt with it.

Can an ICAC investigation lead to criminal charges? Perhaps Ms. Berejiklian can experience a lockdown of her own in a 10x12 cell.

I hope the Aussies keep fighting to eliminate these corrupt leaders. Australia is the test case to see how far the world's tyrants can go.

Really? This is the first I've heard on this. You seem to be knowledgeable, maybe you could tell us more on these tyrants, what makes them tyrants, and how Australia is dealing with said tyrants. I'm quite interested in your thoughts on the matter.

Absolutely 100% true. People on what appears to be your side of the fence, too. Just because you don't appear to have been paying attention at the time, doesn't mean it's not true.
